Fire and herbivory have always been important disturbances in grasslands and their interaction may be particularly important for wildlife habitat. In this week’s episode, we talk to Dr. Sam Fuhlendorf of Oklahoma State University and Bob Hamilton of The Nature Conservancy about using patch-burn-grazing to mimic that natural process. Strategic use of prescribed fire and cattle may lead to habitat improvements for wildlife while increasing cattle production.
